Weekly iPod Wars: Battle #6

So, what did we learn from Battle #5? Just that Billy Idol still has it. (And to be honest, even though he's looking a little worse for wear these days, he could still have me.)

Although Billy's ballsy rock handily beat the softer sounds of City and Colour last week, he's up against a real monster this time around. His opponent? Oh, just a little band called Led Zeppelin.

Now, turn up your speakers, rock out and then vote for your favorite song in the comments section.

On a side note: I'm sorry that I haven't had much time to blog lately, but I just got a new job so I'm getting acclimated to having a much earlier start time and actual responsibilities that don't leave room for me to blog during work hours. Hopefully, I will be back in the swing before, uh, ten years have gone by.

Song #1: "To Be A Lover," Billy Idol

VS.

Song #2: "Ten Years Gone," Led Zeppelin

I plead no contest on this one. Whatever that means.

Congrats on the new job though, ladyfriend! That's awesome!

This was closer than it should have been because your iPod didn't do Zeppelin any favors with its song choice. But Zeppelin still finally ends the reign of Billy Idol by a hair.

And congrats!

Not the most compelling Led Zeppelin song in the world, is it? Gonna have to go with Billy Idol on this.

When that music vid came on and Billy sneered, I use to pipe in "I've got to be Elvis, have mercy!"

Even though "To Be A Lover" has actually aged better than I thought it would, my vote is for the might Zep. Lyrically, vocally and certainly from a guitar standpoint, it's not even close.

Scope said...

Yeah, your iPod tried to sandbag Zep, but I'm giving it to them anyway.

Macy said...

Just let me know when Billy Idol's disappeared from the voting options....

Cora said...

Still sticking with Mr Idol.

Kristen said...

Nice right curve - Led Zeppelin.

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
